Location 4: Amron's Castle (Auster)



In the echoing, moss-covered walls of the castle, it is said that the spirit of a great king still paces the halls. This upright beast prowls the grounds looking for all that he has lost. They say if he spots you, he will hunt you down and turn you into one of those lifeless animals mounted on the walls of the castle.. only the bravest wolves dare enter these haunted halls. Are you one of them?

Danger Level: Extreme

Post here if you're up for the challenge. Nobody will be held responsible for any damage that occurs as a result of trick-or-treating here. ;)

Sandor is brave enough! Bring it!




Sandor gets a trick!

Maybe it wasn't such a wise idea to come to Amron's Castle... what's a kid doing out all this way, all by himself? As he moves through the ruins of the castle, the shadows all around him seem to dance menacingly all around, making the already small boy feel so that muchsmaller.

Sandor's growth appears to be slightly stunted, and he will only grow to 34" as an adult rather than the 36" that was expected.

Akna is offered up as sacrifice trick or treating at the castle





Akna gets a trick!

Though there's little that scares Akna, the downright haunting atmosphere of the castle is enough to unnerve even the strongest of wolves. Is it spirits that walk these hallowed halls, or is it something more earthly? Her mind briefly drifts to the spiritual world, long enough for her to lose track of time.. though as she comes to her senses, she realizes that she isn't quite sure who she is, let alone what she's doing here..

Akna is suffering from minor amnesia. To recover from this, she must experience this amnesia in at least two posts!

Ballad follows Akna into extreme danger




Ballad gets a treat!

The castle seems unusually sinister on this dark, cold night, but Ballad is eager to stalk out her band's new stomping grounds anyway. Before long she decides that any danger this place possesses is merely a figment of the imagination, and she knows that even if something bad ends up happening that Tor would surely protect her, right?

Thanks to her bravery, Ballad gains 20 fighting skill points!

Sirius walks this dark path





Sirius gets a trick!

Surely this big bad wolf has nothing to fear walking through Amron's Castle, right? As one who seems to fear nothing, not even darkness itself, Sirius walks the halls with ease, even taking a risky jump up a mess of fallen debris to make it up to the castle's second story. Sadly he doesn't take into account that his weight might be too much for the crumbling stone to bear, and he comes crashing down quickly.

Sirius breaks one of his front legs! He suffers a -10% reduction in all future fights until it heals (December 3).

Aureus gets a treat!

Revisiting the old territories of Risen Empire, Aureus isn't quite sure what remains for him there. Luckily enough, he stumbles across some trinkets and treasures, and even brings come back home with him.

Now that she's lost track of her family, Vera don't give no hecks and heads to the most dangerous spot for the best rewards.




Veraxes gets a treat!

She gives no hecks at all, and goes trampling through the castle in search of some sweet loot. Is she brave, or just reckless? Who cares - she finds a bunch of Gemstones in the process, unlike those other nerds that got hurt along the way!

Veraxes gets 200 Gems! (Added to Credits)

Big fluffy walks into a bar.




Dagfinn gets a treat!

Dagfinn also gives no hecks or damns about the danger of this place, and he lumbers after the other two, who seem to have found something interesting. He's tempted to just steal their money, but luckily he stumbles across some of his own and decides to snatch it up and save the fighting for another day.

Pyrrhic is in




Pyrrhic gets a trick!

Surely Amron's Castle can't be that dangerous. Pyrrhic knows that place like the back of his own paw, so he can't imagine he has anything to be afraid of. Perhaps it's grief for those he has lost, or maybe fear of his own shortcomings, but... when he arrives back at the castle he can't help but feel a sense of impending dread, and he feels much more insignificant than he ever has before... and smaller, too.

Pyrrhic seems a bit smaller, and it's not only in his head. Somehow he notices he's lost 2" of height. That's strange...
Pyrrhic has a male mandrill companion named Benkos. Unless he's mentioned IC it's safe to assume he's not with Pyrrhic.

Valentine too




Valentine gets a trick!

Valentine has never flinched in the face of impending doom, so the foreboding atmosphere doesn't smother this crotchety old man's stubborn confidence in his own abilities. Perhaps he should have been more careful - falling through a rotted cellar door is going to leave a mark that he won't recover from as fast as he once would have.

Valentine falls and hurts a bunch of stuff. Badly. To recover from this, he must experience the effects of his injuries in at least two posts to begin recovery.

NOTE: Valentine has a female striped skunk companion named Lefty. Unless stated otherwise assume she's present.

Armando gets a treat!

The nimble Armando finds it easier than most to navigate Amron's Castle, happily climbing up and down the fallen ruins until he finds something worth taking as a souvenir.

Armando finds 150 Gems! (Added to Credits)

Armando has a female tufted titmouse companion. It doesn't have a name because it's dumb and doesn't deserve one. Assume it's with him always.

And Bals




Balsam gets a trick!

As if Balsam hasn't had enough bad luck lately, it's about to get even worse when he decides to explore the abandoned castle. Climbing the walls of the ruins comes as easily as climbing trees to him - that is, until he gets one of his paws wedged between two immovable pieces of stone, and when trying to pull away realizes he's broken one of his freaky thumbs in the process! Ouch, that one will take awhile to heal..

Balsam breaks one of his false thumbs!

Jupiter gets a treat!

Who's scared of an ugly old castle? Jupiter isn't! He isn't nearly as careful as he should be, but in the end it all works out for him, and instead of walking home with an injury he ends up finding some sweet loot on his way out. Woohoo!

Jupiter finds 100 Gems. (Added to Credits)

NOTE: this character is pretty on the outside but nothing but ugliness and innuendo on the inside. It's best to consider all threads with him rated 'M' regardless of the official tags.

And Ody




Odysseus gets a trick!

What's he doing all the way down in Auster? Who knows. This brave dude isn't afraid of conquering the darkness of the castle, even with the eerie shadows that dance on the walls and threaten to envelop him whole. But wait - ouch, wait the hell was that? As he turns to see what that sharp pain in his back leg was, he sees something that looks alarmingly like a snake slither away. Ouch! Did he seriously get bit by a snake? Before long he feels the snakebite begin to throb and ache and he swears his vision is beginning to blur... maybe he should find a healer to help him.

Odysseus got bit by a snake! He needs to find an Advanced Healer to help him with his injury before Summer hits, or he will die.
Odysseus has a male rhesus macaque companion named Olafur. Unless he's mentioned IC it's safe to assume he's not with Odysseus.

DANGER!?! -Yeets Bells and her companions in.- Have fun, kids.




Belle gets a trick!

Having never been here before, Belle decides to explore this strange, dilapidated old castle. Maybe the sinister aura of this place should've given her good reason to turn back before getting in over her head, but apparently she has different plans. Unluckily for her, she ends up trying to navigate over a particularly sharp cut of stone, and when she loses her footing and goes stumbling, she gets a nasty gash on one of her legs. It's bleeding heavily and needs to be looked at immediately!

Belle got a deep cut! She needs to be tended to by an Advanced Healer before Summer, or she will lose use of one of her legs.

Eisleif gets a treat!

Exploring creepy, haunted castles isn't something Eisleif is particularly afraid of. Last she heard, people were actually finding treasure in here. What's not to like? Might as well follow in their pawsteps and scoop up some goodies of her own!

and Eliphas




Eliphas gets a trick!

Upon entering the courtyard of Amron's Castle, Eliphas is mesmerized by the ancient statues that stand, laced in years of moss and vines - for a moment he swears he sees one of the wolves blink, but upon further inspection he stops to tell himself that his eyes are only playing tricks on him. As he continues to explore the courtyard, and finally the inside of the castle, he feels his vision growing blurry and his head beginning to hurt as the clouds part to reveal a bright moon overhead, shining down through the cracks in the stone.

Eliphas suffers with temporary vision problems, including blurriness and light sensitivity! To recover from this, he must experience this in two posts!
